Bible Commentary for Matthew 24:7

Wesley's Notes for Matthew 24:7


24:5 Many shall come in my name - First, false Christs, next, false prophets, #Mt 24:11|. At length, both together, #Mt 24:24|. And indeed never did so many impostors appear in the world as a few years before the destruction of Jerusalem; undoubtedly because that was the time wherein the Jews in general expected the Messiah.

24:6 Wars - Near: Rumours of wars - At a distance. All these things must come to pass - As a foundation for lasting tranquillity. But the end - Concerning which ye inquire, is not yet - So far from it, that this is but the beginning sorrows.

24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to affliction - As if ye were the cause of all these evils. And ye shall he hated of all nations - Even of those who tolerate all other sects and parties; but in no nation will the children of the devil tolerate the children of God. #Matt 10:17|.
